Z99 Radiothon Auction Information

Hi everyone!  First of all, thanks for participating in this auction and helping to raise money for such a good cause.  Second, I have tried to think of everything possible for these guidelines so that the auction goes smoothly but obviously this is my first attempt so there may be a few glitches.  Please be patient with me. :-)

Here's what you need to know!  If I miss something or you have any other questions, please ask.

Time:  The auction will begin at 12 noon SK Time on Friday, March 11th, 2011 and end on Sunday, March 13th at 8 pm SK Time.  I will be using Facebook time to determine last minute bids.  Posts with time stamps of 8:00 pm or later will not count so get your bids in by 7:59 pm.  I will offer time reminders as the end of the auction approaches especially for those of you not from Saskatchewan.

Bidding:  To place a bid, simply enter the amount you are willing to pay under the photo.  Each item has a minimum bid and you may not start any lower than that bid.  Please increase bids by at least $2 so we're not quibbling over a few cents.  Once again, bids must be made by 7:59 pm on Sunday..anything after 8:00 pm will not count.

Questions about items:  You can contact businesses via their contact information or ask myself if you need clarification about anything.  I listed quite a bit of information as well as websites, facebook pages, and etsy sites so you can refer to those to help you with deciding on what you'd like and how much to bid.

Shipping: Some businesses have indicated local pickup only.  If that is NOT indicated, that means the sponsors are willing to provide free shipping to the winning bidder (within Canada).  There are no additional shipping costs.

Payment: I will be accepting the payments via a PayPal donations link that I will send to winning bidders at the end of the auction.  I will contact winning bidders via Facebook messaging to confirm the amount owed.  Winning bidders will have 24 hours to deposit the amount via PayPal.  I will take names and addresses for bids over $10 so the Radiothon may issue tax receipts.  If I do not receive the amount within 24 hours, I will contact the next highest bidder.  Once I receive payments, I will notify the sponsor and provide them with the winner's name and address so they can arrange shipment/pickup.

Auction protocol: As with any auction, please only bid if you intend to pay.  No bid deleting is allowed.  Once you make a bid, it must stand. 

Last but not least, have fun!  Let's try to raise as much money as we can for the NICU and remember that you are kind of getting a bonus item and a tax receipt for your donation so please be generous.  Also, feel free to compliment and thank sponsors shamelessly.

  1. Well done Trudy! I can't wait for it to begin!

  2. are people from the US allowed to bid (willing to pay shipping, of course)? (weirdly enough i could have a canadian shipping address if needed - family up there). thanks!

  3. Hi there! Just Canada this time around as I know there are some businesses that don't ship to the US yet. Feel free to bid and use a Canadian shipping address though!
